David Kelly, Director of Financial Planning and Strategy in the College of Science and College of Engineering and Architecture, has been appointed as the new Bursar. UCD President Andrew Deeks confirmed he would begin his 10 year term on the 28th May, following a meeting of the Governing Authority on Monday.

Kelly ‘will lead integrated strategic, financial planning and budgeting across the University, including our ambitious building programme and the ongoing upgrade of campus facilities.’ Deeks noted he has ‘worked in a financial planning role at UCD since 2006’ and previously worked in a ‘range of financial roles within the BBC over a 17 year period, including Head of Business & Finance, BBC Radio 2 & 6Music.’

The previous Bursar, Gerry O’Brien, left UCD last year to become the Chief Operating Officer and Registrar of UL.
